Like characters in a novel, each Texas Hill Country town exudes its own distinct personality. No two are the same. That’s the draw that makes each city so much fun to visit. Take Boerne, for instance. Located just 30 minutes from Northwest San Antonio, Boerne makes a perfect destination for a short Texas Hill Country getaway. Craft breweries, fine dining, shopping, and unique local attractions will keep you busy and give you plenty of reasons to come on back.

Day One – Art, Shopping, and Beer


Everyone could use a little hand-crafted caffeine to get their morning started. No better place to wake up than at the Dienger Trading Company. Fuel up for the day with classic breakfast fare including fine quality meats from Klein Smokehaus. Leave room for a tasty treat from the bakery. Don’t forget to browse the bookstore and boutique before you head out. Dienger Trading Company, 210 North Main Street, Boerne.

After breakfast, get acquainted with the town strolling down Boerne’s Hill Country Mile shopping and historic district and wandering Boerne’s town trail system. Sculptural displays belonging to the Art Al Fresco Public Art Program (an art on loan program) dot the landscape as you amble by.

History buffs will want to pick up a map and spend the morning cruising the town streets learning about the city’s colorful past during a do-it-yourself Historic Walking Tour.


After a busy morning, your tummy will be rumbling again urging you to search out lunch. Check out the Dodging Duck Brewhaus with its mouth-watering menu of burgers, salads, and sandwiches. Kids can order from the Duckling menu. Stick around for the afternoon and imbibe in a beer flight of some (or all) of the Dodging Duck’s award-winning brews. Dodging Duck Brewhaus, 402 River Road, Boerne


As your relaxing afternoon winds down, thoughts of dinner begin to sneak into your head. You can’t visit a Texas Hill Country town without sampling some juicy, chin-wiping barbecue so head on over to the Texas Meat Co. Their secret to great barbecue? Freshness. They only make enough barbecue to last the day and when it’s gone, it’s gone. Grass fed, humanely raised, and ethically sourced meat only add to the freshness factor. Texas Meat Co., 1101 South Main Street, Boerne.
